Legislators say they
don't expect to bring
back Promise grant
Daily StaffReporter
In-state students seeking an
alternative to the Michigan Prom-
ise Scholarship that was elimi-
nated in the state's 2010 fiscal year
budget may find aid in the form
of need-based scholarships in the
next legislative term under Gover-
nor-elect Rick Snyder.

Snyder and the slate of incoming
state legislators haven't completed
an extensive budget analysis yet,
but both say they're working to
combat the loss of the scholar-
ship that provided $500 to $4,000
in merit-based funding to nearly
96,000 students. And while state
legislators say they don't expect to
bring the scholarship back, they're
confident they'll be able to address
the overall structure of the state's
financial aid system.
Snyder spokesman Ryan
Kazmirzack said in an interview
that one of Snyder's initiatives is to

Measure regulating
Asian carp passes
easily in U.S. House

Bill on its way to
Obama's desk has
support from many
interest groups
For the Daily
The United States House of Rep-
resentatives approved the Asian
Carp Prevention and Control Act
by a voice vote yesterday - a bill

that regulates bighead Asian carp
under the Lacey Act, banning
importation and interstate trans-
port of the invasive species cur-
rently threatening the Great Lakes.
The Senate unanimously passed
a companion measure earlier this
month, and the bill will now head
to President Barack Obama's desk
to be signed into law.
If signed, the bighead carp will
join company with silver carp,
which the Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice has regulated since 2007.

UHS official: 70
percent of students
have struggled with
disordered dieting
Daily StaffReporter
The University's Health Ser-
vice and Counseling and Psycho-
logical Services offer a variety
of resources for students deal-
ing with issues such as stress
management, sexual health and
depression. And for students who
may be dealing with eating dis-
orders, there are more resources
now available than in previous
To more actively promote

healthy body images and life-
styles on campus, UHS estab-
lished a new program called the
Body Peace Corps earlier this
year. Kellie Carbone, the pro-
gram's healthy eating and body
image educator, said she believes
students need to shift their per-
ception of what a healthy body
looks like.
"We want people to shift from a
thin ideal to a healthy ideal," Car-
bone said.
About 70 percent of students on
campus have struggled with dis-
torted dieting, calorie swapping
or full-blown eating disorders,
according to Carbone. She said
she believes that it is University
students' tendency to strive for
perfection in all aspects of their
lives that causes many students to
engage in disordered eating.

"Students are so used to being
at the top of the-class, but they
come here and are one of many
brilliant minds," Carbone said.
Andrea Lawson, a social work-
er at CAPS who focuses on eating
and body image concerns, wrote
in an e-mail interview that about
15 percent of the total students
who make use of CAPS express
concern with eating and body
Twenty-five percent of the Uni-
versity's student body most likely
suffers from some sort of eating
disorder, Lawson wrote, the most
common falling into the category
of "Eating Disorders Not Other-
wise Specified." Bulimia Nervosa
is the second most common dis-
order, affecting 1 to 3 percent of
students here, she said.
CAPS doesn't keep track of

how University students compare
to students at other universities,
Lawson said.
Julie Stocks, a registered dieti-
cian at UHS, said about one-third
of her patients struggle with some
type of eating disorder. She said
her patients aren't confined to a
certain group of the student body
but come from all across the Uni-
versity's many communities.
Stocks said she thinks there
are some components of any
group setting that may trigger
an increase in eating disorders,
but in reality it all boils down to
whether a person has a predispo-
sition for that type of condition.
"There are so many dynamics
when looking at a group," Stocks
said. "Therehastobesomepredis-
position to it. There are biological

World AIDS week
features movie
screenings, bake sales
For the Daily
It may come as a shock to many
that the incidence of HIV/AIDS is
greater in Washington D.C. than
in some parts of Africa. But the
Planning Committee for World
AIDS Week, along with other orga-
nizations on campus and in the
local community, are working to
educate students and area residents
on the issue.
World AIDS Week, which began
Monday and will end Friday, fea-
tures events ranging from bake
sales to movie screenings. As part
of the week, students and com-
munity members also observed
nationally-recognized World AIDS
Day yesterday, which aims to halt
the spread of the disease and work
against the stigma associated with
Carrie Rheingans, chair of the
Planning Committee for World
AIDS Week in 2009, said

With 7.03-percent
Urnot RSG sees
participation jump

while World AIDS Day plays a
critical role in educating about the
disease, there isn't enough time to
cover all of the diverse associated
topics in one day.
"That's why we made this a
whole week instead of just one
World AIDS Day, because there are
so many issues that relate to HIV
(that) it's hard to talk about one
thing without talking about every-
thing," Rheingans said.
The week began on Monday
morning with a kick-off breakfast
and bake sale at Mason Hall that
included displays for the upcoming
events for the week.
On Tuesday, CoitusLove put on
a theme Jeopardy game in Angell
Hall called, "What Do You Know
About Sex?" The Latino Students
Organization also presented a dis-
cussion on Tuesday led by Mark
Padilla, assistant professor of
health behavior and health edu-
cation, in the Michigan League
about HIV/AIDS in Latin America
and the Caribbean.

Officials decided
not to collaborate
with MSA, UMEC
and LSA-SG
Daily StaffReporter
At last night's Rackham Stu-
dent Government meeting, mem-
bers of the assembly reviewed the.
results of the fall 2010 RSG elec-
tions, which saw an increase in
voter turnout and the election of
13 representatives.
The elections, which coincided
with the other student govern-
ment elections on campus, took
place on Nov. 17 and Nov. 18.
Though RSG officials opted out
of collaborative voter turnout
efforts - in which LSA Student
Government, University of Michi-

gan Engineering Council and the
Michigan Student Assembly com-
bined resources to promote the
elections - turnout in this semes-
ter's RSG election was up from
both fall 2009 and winter 2010
In an interview after last
night's meeting, RSG President
Michael Benson said RSG officials
decided to opt out of the collabora-
tive voter turnout efforts because
graduate students tend to be more
spread out than undergraduate
students, making it difficult to
effectively distribute stickers, fly-
ers and other'promotional materi-
als that were a major part of the
collaborative campaign.
"There's no one central gath-
ering point, there's not even a set
of three or four classroom build-
ings," Benson said. "We have
Rackham students that are mas-
ter's students, for example, in the
